Today is payday for us military folks, it usually means grocery shopping, paying bills and running errands, so after Jasmine is off to school, Nicholas and I set off to the commissary. BUT we have to make it there exactly at 9am because if we don't then the shopping carts he likes riding on are gone and then we have a cranky, fed up little 4 year old that refuses to cooperate. Here's my thing though, I don't mind getting him the shopping cart, but it's annoying because they waste so much space on the seats and the cool looking kids stuff that you end up with an area for groceries that is about two baskets long. Tsk...Tsk....Tsk.
Anyway, by the time we were dressed and ready to go, the sky was looking like this. No biggie right? I fed the dogs, rechecked my grocery list and headed to the door, opened it and was met with a rain shower. So it's been raining ever since and it's cloudy and cool and just the perfect day to stay inside with a good movie.....like, oh I don't know......Road to Avonlea Series???
I got another 2 DVD's from Netflix yesterday and I've already watched one LOL I'm just loving this series.
So I'm back home, groceries are done, I'm paying bills online, both the dishwasher and washer are running and we've had our lunch. Not bad for it only being noon.
Jasmine came home from school yesterday with a bag of goodies from Valentine's Day and my first thought was "Oh crud, there's going to be fighting over the candy". But to my surprise she picked out the only Scooby Doo she got and went over to hand it to Nicholas. He was so happy LOL
And here's Jasmine with all her goodies......
And one of her with her straight hair. You all know how she has that beautiful curly hair? Well she's growing up and realizing that she doesn't HAVE to keep the same hairstyle, so lately she's gotten into begging me to straighten her hair for special occasions....you know....like Valentine's Day at school. *snicker*
I love my girl, she's just so beautiful but it's so weird for me because when her hair is straight like that I see myself in her, like REALLY see myself in her, it's like looking in the mirror. Not that I'm saying I'm beautiful LOL
Believe me, I do not think I'm pretty at all.....see now I'm all confused because how can I not think I'm pretty and see myself in my daughter but thinks she's gorgeous?????? Somebody help me, my view of myself is very skewed LOL
But enough with the photos.....Curt came home from work yesterday with tons of chocolates and cards for me, and not just any chocolate, the Godiva expensive chocolates. I love my man!
We got another house just a few streets above ours. Won't be within walking distance to the school anymore, but that's ok.
It's a corner house, the front yard is huge and we still don't have a fence in the back, but we're getting one put in right after we move in so the kids and the dogs can go out there without us having to be outside constantly worrying about them staying in the area they're supposed to.
But you know what we have in the backyard??? An orange tree! Yep, an orange tree overflowing with big juicy oranges....I think! I mean I know the oranges are there, we saw them but as for the juicy I can't vouch for that yet, but I will soon. *snort*
We move out next friday so it doesn't give us much time at all to get things ready, but since we've opted to move ourselves, we're renting a U-Haul for a day and getting the big stuff in there, the rest of the things we can easily take between Curt's big truck and my SUV. So with God's help and a lot of patience, it will be done and we will be in our new house by the 26th of February. Goodness that's not far away at all.
My posts may become sporadic and may be none while we get cable and internet set up in the new house, but since it's already empty, I am just waiting on confirmation from housing on the actual move in date for us and I'll have cable and internet set up and ready for us. It's always better to think ahead.
I have a huge headache today and my allergies are bugging the heck out of me, so much so that I was walking through the commissary and my eyes were watery and itching and Nicholas yells out "Go away allagies" LOL It was the cutest thing ever.
My kids are always saying the funniest things, so I think I'll start posting some of it every day....a From the Mouthes of Babes kind of thing.
Just this morning I was laying in bed and Nicholas woke up, climbed in with me and started rubbing my back then he notices a mole on my right shoulder and got really confused.....
Nicholas - What's this mommy? This thing I'm touching?
Me (half asleep) - It's a mole Neenee (that's what we call him lol)
Nicholas - A MOLE?!?!?!?!
Me - yes baby, a mole, that's what it's called....it's a mole.
Nicholas - But moles are supposed to live UNDER the ground not on people.
Bwhahahahahahahahahahaha I tell you that woke me up straight away, I've never laughed so hard.
Anyway, I am going to take something for this blasted headache and lay down for a bit. I've updated the Padre Island Shells recipe on the food blog if anyone is interested.
Have a great friday everyone.
